“William and I are absolutely thrilled. It’s such exciting news.”

It seems that the Duchess and Meghan Markle are as thick as thieves with Miss Markle labeling Kate as an ‘amazing’ source of support for her.

Miss Markle covered a lot of ground in her first joint interview with Prince Harry after the announcement of their engagement.

Even though both of them have had experience with the media they were still ‘unprepared’ for the media storm that would follow the announcement of their engagement.

“It’s not easy for anybody,” said Harry.

“But at the end of the day she chooses me and I choose her and whatever we have to tackle together or individually, we’ll always be together as a team.”
